Notes on the Block Lotto Transition

Posted by on January 2, 2012 in blocks | 2 comments

For those who are interested, I’ll post updated on our transition to a new home and label them with “transition” (which I’ve added to the other labels in the right sidebar). 

It’s going to take some time.  I have imported our more than 7,000 blog posts from here … but then realized to keep the author’s names on them, I had to create accounts for everyone who has posted (hence the email some of you have received and the rest will probably receive this week). Then I have to change the author on all those posts … sound like fun?

I’ve done nothing yet in terms of design, so if you followed the link (and I know some of you have) you’ve seen a very ugly page.  My advice is DON’T LOOK yet … and definitely DO NOT start commenting or posting until we officially launch.

Anything you post here will be imported and nothing will be lost, so let’s PLEASE keep it all on this blog until we’re ready to move.


  1. have you thought sophie of just starting the authors, etc from the first of jan 2012 or to go back to jan of 2011 and leave what is in blogger there for the time being???

    of course…. duplicate or bring all the great block patterns 🙂

  2. Unfortunately, when you abandon a blog you have no control on how long the content will last … if you don't believe me, go find the original block lotto blog and see how many images are no longer there (hint: you won't see ANY images).

    Actually, automatically bringing everything over is probably faster than picking and choosing and making sure I bring over "all the great block patterns" you mention and everything else that someone wants to continue to be able to find … and I probably want easy access to more than anyone else 🙂
